We are so pleased you enjoyed the Farm! We have more varieties ripening every couple of weeks, so we hope you can return. Next are the Fujis, Golden Delicious and Pippins. Yummy!

This is a great orchard with many varieties of apple. We happened by early in the season. Apples were already ripe, as we have had little rain. The apples were excellent, and just slightly smaller than last year. I pray for rain! Come on El...More

It's a little late, but there may be a few left. Try calling this or another similar apple orchard. Then, mark your calendar for earlier next year :) Good luck!
